Default Greywing, clearwing or something else?

Hi, I have searched everywhere, but I am still in doubt of my boy's mutation. It looks like he is a greywing, but I'm still in doubt. Also wondering if he could be both opaline and grey/clearwing at the same time. Any opinions on the mutation? Let me know if I need to take some photos from a different angle.













The first and last pictures are from when he was a baby, and in a smaller cage (his taming cage)

Opaline grey wing, from the pix. A beautiful boy! I think clearwing is white esp at the wingtips. I have a pair of rescued keets that I'll try to post as illustration.

he's an opaline greywing due to diluted body color. If he were opaline clearwing, his body would be full color. See https://www.cutelittlebirdiesaviary.c...nd-dilute.html.

He's lovely and those are cute pictures!

I love his big dark eyes. Does he not have eye rings as an adult?

Thank you for the lovely answers. He does have an iris ring, but it is not that easy to spot

My first thought when seeing him was opaline greywing . He's so handsome.

You need a blue based budgie, opaline, clearwing (or fullbody greywing) and yellowface - combo of all of those mutations will bring you to the Rainbow
